SEOUL, June 20 (Korea Bizwire) – Tesla Motors Inc. on Tuesday began the delivery of its emission-free vehicles to South Korean customers at an event held at its after sale service center in southwestern Seoul.
The U.S. electric carmaker invited some 100 South Koreans composed of the buyers of the Model S 90D, their families and friends, a Seoul-based Tesla spokeswoman said.
The event, however, was not open to the local media, as Tesla makes it a rule to not hold press conferences to promote its cars.
“We do not release the number of preorders and vehicles delivered to our customers either,” she said.
At the launch event, Tesla outlined the specs of the Model S 90D, offered people a chance to drive the car, and showcased the autopilot program in the all-electric vehicle. The autonomous driving features include an advanced emergency braking system (AEBS) and forward collision warning system (FCWS).
